More doses on the way
In related news, a new EU agreement with Pfizer/BioNTech means that 3.9 million additional doses are on the way to Denmark.

Figures from the State Serum Institute showed that 102,092 people had received the first dose as of this morning. 

That’s about 1.75 percent of the population.

And medicines agency, Lægemiddelstyrelsen, Denmark has pre-ordered enough vaccines to cover 18.8 million people. 

As a result, there will be enough doses to service about three times the country’s population.
